How to vote this election


GetUp's how-to-vote cards tell voters specifically how to cast their vote in favour of a given issue, such as more funding for hospitals, renewable energy, and a fair and transparent democracy.

In early 2016, GetUp members were asked what issues were most important to them this election.

The top three issues for the GetUp movement were:

  • More action on climate change and renewable energy
  • Protecting health and Medicare from cuts
  • Cleaning up our democracy, especially by breaking down the relationship between the coal lobby and politicians
The issues featured on the how-to-vote cards for each electorate reflect the combination of these priorities, as well as issues important to local swing voters.
